First of all welcome to The Field Negro Guide to Arts and Culture a podcast with W. Kamau Bell (THAT'S ME!) --- outspoken comedian, race commentator, and stealth educator --- and Vernon Reid --- Guitar Legend, Two Time Grammy Award Winner, and founder of Living Colour. We are here to engage in a weekly, freewheeling conversation that covers everything from everything to everything else. It is two black men who have been accused of being outside of the (black) box so long that they have built homes there. Less a traditional podcast and more like a conversation that you overhear in a coffee shop and can't pull away from.
This is our first episode... Well, it actually should be our 2nd... But... I'll just let Vernon will explain when you listen to it.
This episode we planned to talk about the challenge of superhero film adaptions, Vernon's Swedish vampire movie recommendation, and Gary Coleman. But don't be too wedded to those topics. We weren't.
In other words, a musician and a comedian have a podcast and spend very little time talking about music or comedy.
Get on board. It's gonna be interesting.
